NOTE 13 – SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY
An aggregate of 30,329,883 ordinary shares and 3,966,667 warrants were originally issued by CGEI to Chum Capital Group Limited, in connection with a private placement prior to CGEI’s initial public offering, and that became exercisable for the Company’s ordinary shares beginning on March 27, 2013 (the “Sponsor Warrants”). The Sponsor Warrants have been registered for resale by the selling security-holders under Form S-3 filed on June 17, 2013 and declared effective on June 19, 2013. On June 2, 2011, the Company sold 5,000,000 units, at an offering price of $10.00 per unit, generating gross proceeds of $50,000,000. Each unit consisted of one ordinary share, $0.001 par value, of the Company and one purchase warrant. Each warrant will entitle the holder to purchase from the Company one ordinary share at an exercise price of $12.00 per share commencing upon the completion of a business combination and expiring five years from the consummation of a business combination. The Company also registered an aggregate of 8,966,667 ordinary shares that are issuable by the Company upon exercise of the 3,966,667 Sponsor Warrants and 5,000,000 warrants that were issued in the CGEI’s initial public offering (the “Public Warrants”) and that became exercisable upon the consummation of the transactions contemplated by that certain Agreement and Plan of Merger, dated as of October 24, 2012, between CGEI, CDGC, China Growth Dredging Sub Ltd. and Xinrong Zhuo and by that certain Share Purchase Agreement, dated as of October 24, 2012, between CGEI and Merchant Supreme.
Each Public Warrants and Sponsor Warrant (the “Warrants”) entitled the registered holder thereof to purchase one of the Company’s ordinary shares upon payment of the exercise price of $12.00 per share.
The Sponsor Warrants were identical to the Public Warrants except that the Sponsor Warrants were exercisable for cash or on a cashless basis, at the holder’s option, and were not redeemable by the Company, in each case so long as they were still held by these purchases or their transferees.
In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company accounted for the Warrants as equity instruments.
The warrants expired on February 26, 2018.
Pingtan Guansheng, Fujian Heyue, Pingtan Fishing, Pingtan Dingxin, Pingtan Duoying and Pingtan Ruiying, which operate in the PRC are required to reserve 10% of their net profits after income tax, as determined in accordance with the PRC accounting rules and regulations. Appropriation to the statutory reserve by the Company is based on profit arrived at under PRC accounting standards for business enterprises for each year. The statutory reserves of the Company represent the statutory reserves of the above-mentioned companies as required under the PRC law.
The profit arrived at must be set off against any accumulated losses sustained by the Company in prior years, before allocation is made to the statutory reserve. Appropriation to the statutory reserve must be made before distribution of dividends to shareholders. The appropriation is required until the statutory reserve reaches 50% of the registered capital. This statutory reserve is not distributable in the form of cash dividends. As of December 31, 2015, the Company appropriated the required 50% of its registered capital to statutory reserve for Heyue. Accordingly, no additional statutory reserve for Heyue is required for the nine months ended September 30, 2018. The Company will make appropriation to statutory reserve for Pingtan Fishing by the end of year 2018.
Pingtan Guansheng, Pingtan Dingxin, Pingtan Duoying, Pingtan Ruiying, Pingtan Ocean, Fuzhou Howcious Management, Fuzhou Howcious Investment, Pingtan Shinsilkroad and Pingtan Yikang had sustained losses since their establishments. No appropriation to statutory reserves for them was required as they incurred recurring net losses.

Includes, but is not limited to, balances of common stock, preferred stock, additional paid-in capital, other capital and retained earnings, accumulated balance for each classification of other comprehensive income and amount of comprehensive income.
